It’s only took me a few listens to learn the words to the brand new album from Manitoba’s Plain As Ghosts, and that’s something that makes it a solid album in my mind. The band has only been together since the fall of 2014 but they have created a sound that is recognizable as their own.
The title track, “Rendering” creates a great transition into the first full length track, and my personal favourite track, “Convolution”.
“Monday Morning Quarterback” was released as the first single just a few weeks ago and it’s a great track to show what sound the band is trying to achieve.
While listening to the album I thought it sounded similar to some bands I’ve heard before but was never quite able to pin point what those bands were. Plain As Ghosts creates a recognizable sound that many can appreciate while still staying true to the sound that they’ve created as a band.
I’m Tara and I’m a graphic designer from Newfoundland. I am very fortunate to live in a city where there is a ton of amazing musicians. I’ve grown very fond of the local music scene in St. John’s and some of my favorite bands are ones I’ve met through going to local shows.
